(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that she sees “no reason” why former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, would have to testify at the impeachment hearings this week, because “this wasn’t a valid investigation.”
When asked whether he would be okay with Hunter Biden testifying, Klobuchar said, “Adam Schiff has said this best, and that's what this is all about, which was a sham investigation that the president was trying to push. And, for now, the House is simply gathering relevant evidence about what the president did. That is what this is about.
“I note they also want to try to get the whistle-blower to testify, when, in fact, all sources tell us that what the whistle-blower said was secondhand information, and they now have firsthand information of diplomats, military people, others that actually heard these actions occur where the president was pushing for Ukraine to start an investigation against his political opponents in exchange for military assistance,” she said.
“That is what all of this mounting evidence is showing, and that is why I would agree with Adam Schiff. Why would you reveal the whistle-blower, when you're supposed to have protections, which Republican Senator Grassley has vehemently argued for, protections for this whistle-blower?” the senator said.
“So that's a no on Hunter Biden?” host Jake Tapper asked.
“I see no reason why you would have Hunter Biden testify when from what all the reports that we have seen is, this wasn't a valid investigation. It was something where the president was messing around to try to get information against a political opponent,” Klobuchar said.
